Part of the Production
I am actually in this movie starting at the 7:15 time. I'm sitting at the desk in front of the computer operating a humongous Friedan calculator. The computer is an IBM 650. At one time we had three of those side-by-side, and they were used to create accounts receivable cards for billing approximately 1.5 million residential gas customers each month.
I give this a 5 star rating because I'm one of the stars. ha ha

"Gas Is Best!"
Appeared in big pink and grey neon letters on the gas storage tank located about 2 miles from where I grew up. A leftover artifact from the 1920's, Interesting to see how they found a more efficient and aesthetically pleasing way to store gas. The last part is kinda naively prophetic cause 50 years later they've realized that there is literally oodles of this clean fuel all over the place. And smartly they also got over that idiotic business of burning it off in oil wells.
Very interesting film detailing the business of procuring and delivering gas - in an infrastructure that thank goodness they put in decades ago when it was cheaper to do!

isregard Spuzz, this is a very interesting film...I like the machinery they have here. Nothing like a nice blue flame.

Simply atrociously paced film about the history of natural gas. The novelty of having it told by a talking blue flame of gas dies down as it continues on.. and on.. Till we wished they'd turn the gas on us to end it already.
Bonus points though, for the 1st meeting in the boardroom, which has the same velvet wallpaper that my family had in their living room.
